Received the monitor and was VERY pleasantly surprised. It is much bigger than expected. Initially, the monitor was beautiful. All that nonsense about lack of vertical resolution was not even noticed, AT ALL. The lettering, the fonts none of that is noticeable at all at the distance needed to use this monitor.Then why 3 stars? Approx 3 weeks after receiving, the monitor shut off. After an exhaustive search, I found that this has happened to others. I had to unplug the monitor, shut of the computer (""restart"" didn't work), plug the monitor back in WHILE COMPUTER STILL OFF, then manually power on computer. The monitor would then stay on for approx 3 minutes, go black, stay on for approx one minute, go black, 20 seconds and then off for good until the above procedure repeated. I was able to quickly update the firmware during one of these cycles but this did not fix the issue.Sent first monitor back and figured I would try again. Currently on 2nd monitor to which I immediately updated firmware (released earlier this year). So far I have had this for approx two weeks without issue. Hopefully it will continue working. If not, I will bail altogether. It's a shame though, because this thing is AMAZING. Tom Clancy's The Division, Destiny2, UNBELIEVEABLE to play onand watching movies/videosequally impressive.If you are willing to try something VERY IMPRESSIVE, get this. Just don't get rid of your other monitors right away.
